shooting distancer of 32'-10" (10 meters)

Is the distance measured from the paper target to the muzzle, breech or trigger when bench shooting?

Itís not clearly stated in 50ft rules but If shooting from a bench trigger should be ok for measurement, if standing feet should be behind the measured line.

Thank you, I measure from the trigger. 

I'm too old and unsteady to shoot standing and unsupported.  I do shoot 2 ways.....

1. Seated with a front tripod support
2. Seated behind a sturdy table with the rifle having front and rear supports.  I assume this is called "bench shooting".

What is "off hand"?

Offhand means no support/rest so standing with no outside support other than your hands/shoulder would be offhand
